::: VERY fine AUD! Check samples for byte it or bail on it assessin'.
::: Warts: Fixed dropouts & dullspots but surely missed a few. #10 has a bit of clapping & cuts off after 1&1/2 minutes. Side B of the master was maybe run on a different deck for playback, or something. The signal is quite different on my tape & quality drops off a bit. The change doesn't match where I believe the set change is. #10 cuts not far in.
::: (*) Not positive this is where the set break is.
::: Fillmore West July 9-12, 1970 Quicksilver Messenger Service, Mott the Hoople, Silver Metre. Lights by Brotherhood of Light.
::: COMPARISON CLAUSE: Significant quality upgrade over the commonly circulating M1 38f version & about 10% longer. Features another song (& a partial) from the late set.
::: #3. This gig pre-dates "Tumbleweed Connection" release. The band titles "Country Comfort" as "Country Comforts" (on their LP as well).

DimeTravel 169 ::: Thanks to the original taper & trader! ::: Corrections welcome ::: These guys kinda remind me of a West Coast version of The Gun at times. Thank god we have this set to offset the limited offering we got for a record - blistering guitar work, excellent drumming - fine heavy SF fare, indeed. Not for the meek. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
